Celebrating the 150th Driving of the Golden Spike!
Hogle Zoo is joining the festivities surrounding the 150th anniversary of one of the landmark events in America’s history – the completion of the Transcontinental Railroad! The driving of the Golden Spike happened in Utah, making coast-to-coast travel by train possible.
From 9 – 11a you’ll be able to snap a photo in front of the Zoo’s two beautiful C.P.Huntington locomotives situated nose-to-nose, replicating the iconic photo of 1869.
The event is included with Zoo admission or a valid Zoo membership.
Sponsored in part by the SPIKE150 committee.
